I was already feeling guilty for having left town without Owen and Twinkle the Star That Came Down From Heaven Marshall Strom Kline, better known as Twinkle. But I was only away overnight, and, really, the cats should be used to it by now. Still,
they gave subtle hints that they were not pleased about being left behind.
Okay, so I was already feeling guilty when I received a post urging bloggers to set a posting schedule and then to stick to it. Ouch!
Yes, that’s what I should do. Of course it is. Problem is, sometimes I’m away from home on my scheduled posting days. Sometimes I’m simply too far under writing water to come up for air and write my post. Now and then my brain just blanks out and I can’t think of a thing to say.
Yes, yes. I know all about writing posts in advance. It’s a great strategy . . . when the application works. But it doesn’t always, at least not for me. I don’t want to warn readers ahead of time that I will be away from home because I don’t want to advertise that fact. And sometimes unexpected stuff does happen. A couple of weeks ago, my tiger-striped cat, Owen, stumbled into my cup of tea and spilled it all over my desk. My keyboard died that night. Ugh!
So, here’s what I have to say: My regular posting days are Monday and Thursday. I will do my very best to stick with that schedule. Honest, I will. But if I stumble, or maybe fall flat on my face, please understand that I’m doing my best.
